Family Fun Days

Family Fun days are regular days throughout the year held at different locations where neonatal friends and families can come together for a fun filled day. It is a great way to meet and catch up with other families, have a Whanau day out and to gain social support from other parents who have or are going through a similar experience.  It is for any families that have spent time in a neonatal unit. 

It is a free event and the venue is always changing so it is key to follow our Facebook page and subscribe to our events.
